Nolan’s gas engine is going to the Iowa State Fair. I just got this picture.
This was an old gas engine that his grandpa had in the shed – dirty, dusty and didn’t work. Nolan took it completely apart and overhauled it – amazing! And now it has qualified to go to the state fair next month. Wish I could provide more details but I don’t understand engines.
And just a note to all of you who are congratulating me – the only project I helped with was Reed’s quilt and his chickens. That does not mean I’m not proud of all three kids but parents and grandparents played a big part in their success, much more than me. Nobody could be any more pleased than me however.
Just a quick note to all of you who wrote about roller skating -wasn’t it just the best of times when you were a kid? Roller skating was held over our heads as a reward/punishment. If we did our chores, we’d get to go roller skating, etc. My friend Les just wrote that she remembers being with her family at the skating rink the night before her confirmation. Her mom made her sit on the sideline and study! Haha! What great memories!
Reed and his dad delivered Alta, Eunice and Edna to the fairgrounds late this afternoon and tomorrow morning is the Poultry Show. More news from the fair tomorrow!
